Traffic Alert: I20 eastbound at 1 lane between Bossier and La. Downs

BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

Bossier Police say eastbound traffic on I-20 is down to one lane between Old Minden Road and Harrah's Louisiana Downs because of two traffic accidents.

Police spokesman Mark Natale says two trauma units were called to the scene of the accident at Old Minden Road. An unknown number of people were taken to Willis Knighton in Bossier City.

That accident followed the first one, at Industrial Drive near the racetrack, by about 15 to 20 minutes, Natale says. There were no reports of injury in this first accident.

Authorities will have eastbound I-20 lanes restricted to one lane until wreckers can clear the scene, Natale says.
